HC Deb 11 May 1964 vol 695 c14W
50. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what instructions he gave to the United Kingdom representative on the United Nations Committee on Colonialism with regard to Southern Rhodesia.

Mr. Mathew

We do not recognise that this Committee is competent to deal with the affairs of Southern Rhodesia. The British representative has standing instructions to explain our attitude and the constitutional relationship between Britain and Southern Rhodesia whenever debates in the Committee make this desirable.
